Leadership Starts At The Top

If this stuff happened under my leadership, I would kill myself. OK, I would never really kill myself. But I would be embarrassed and disgraced, and would work very hard to clean things up.

What do you think of this? www.theonlinemarket.org

bottom line:

the police are not your friends.
they are not there to protect [you].
they are not there to serve [you].

this case is just one of the more overt occasions that illustrates this point.

and no, not even the nice guy you've known since high school that always wanted to contribute positively to their community by becoming one. not the guy that was polite when he pulled you over for exceeding the speed limit and let you off with a warning. even he is integral in suppressing individual liberty on a daily basis.

and the issue of accountability cannot be solved until people view protection as a service like any other.. one subject to a voluntary market place.

until then, don't support the establishment gangsters.

i just cant imagine

What piece of shit judges have allowed this policy to continue unabated. Surely it has been challenged in court numerous times. Does anyone the current status of any pending cases? When the branch of govt tasked with understanding the Constitution and being sure the executive and legislative branch are adhering to it, allows for such blatantly illegal practices (including the Patriot Act, NDAA etc.) It gives me very little hope that we can resurrect our system without it first dying.

Effing wack because

Obama, Holder, & crew give law enforcement people (Sheriff Joe, et al.) down south all sorts of trouble for racial profiling & violating rights of Mexicans (non-citizens)...

... but they ignore this?!

Roughing up black US citizens in NYC as a matter of policy?

Bloomberg is a Nazi and should hang like one.

Obama is an Oreo cookie POS.

Why won't black democrats realize Obama doesn't work for them?

What would the Founders do?

I had this on the front page last week

But it definitely deserves to be here again.

Interesting new site, too.

He's the man.

Disgusting.

Good for this young man for recording this and much appreciation for those who produced this video. I also salute the officers who speak out and bring this to light. What a surprise that there is pressure being applied from "higher ups" as it seems to be a pattern across many other departments and industries alike.

The Establishment is putting the pressure because they're well aware they are losing this fight!

If they have sworn an oath the the Constitution

Then violating rights is treason.

If an Oathtaker witnesses this and fails to report it in a timely fashion then they are guilty or Misprision of Treason.

Marbury vs Madison states that in cases involving rights, the Courts have to listen. The have to listen to uphold their own oath.

The Founding Father gave us the screws to turn when our rights are violated.

Free includes debt-free!

By its violation

people now see its importance.

For too long the Constitution has been regarded as some old document that needs to be amended to suit the corporate interests of the former CEOs that now hold positions of political office. To them, the Constitution is like the purest code of ethics, that unfortunately stands in the way of their continual monetary reaping (and raping) from the world with unethical means such as putting in place policies to suit their Corporate friends.

Oath keepers have taken their own stand and are becoming the voice of true patriotism, service and protection of the public by holding strong to their oath.

We will soon reach a tipping point where these violations can no longer be ignored by the masses. That's the wonderful thing about the Truth coming out: Its something we can all see and agree on—and all over the Globe. Be patient, do your part to bring about positive change and let others do their thing. 2012 isn't over yet and there's more revelation to come.

What do you replace them with?

They've got to have another idea that beats patrols on the agenda. looks to me, NY is getting ready to dump patrols and begin and new form of security..

Wow, wow, wow

this was a very powerful video and shows what a mess we are in.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

This will not change...

This will not change unless politicians get involved. And and that won't happen because most are dirty and afraid the police will catch them dirty. I don't know what the solution is, the only solution that politicians present is to be silent and kick the can down the road.

Politicians? I won't hold my

Politicians? I won't hold my breath.

It will stop when people stop "enforcing" unconstitutional orders because they are "just doing their job"

for politicians to get involved

there need to be solutions. This exposes a problem.. what is the solutoon? Drones? Nato occupation? More camera's? More dogs? Curfews?

You have a poluation that thinks government protection is a policestate, while many here believe it is government's job to not protect us, but our rights.

What is their purpose in the first place?

Extorting money for victimless crimes on behalf of the local jurisdiction.

Free includes debt-free!

That is what what the purpose is

The purpose is to uphold our oaths the the constitution.. we're here to remind them.

Yes, we are all here to remind them.

Within a Party and without a party!

Free includes debt-free!
